1 - 15.25oz package chocolate cake mix 1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 - 10 ounce jar maraschino cherries 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Form dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on un-greased baking sheets. Make an indentation with your thumb in the center of each cookie.
Drain cherries and reserve juice. Place a cherry in the indentation of each cookie ball.
Combine chocolate chips with condensed milk in a saucepan over low heat; stir until chocolate is melted. Stir in 4 teaspoons of cherry juice. Drizzle or spoon about 1 teaspoon of chocolate cherry mixture over each cherry to cover.

Add more cherry juice to the melted chocolate mixture if needed to get a spreading consistency.
